Encore: Healthcare Disparities in America with Dr. Richard Allen Williams
August 30, 2016
Hosted by Danielle Delaney
Today the spotlight is on my very Special Guest, Dr. Richard Allen Williams, incoming President of the National Medical Association. He is, incidentally, also my Father, and I'm extremely proud of that! We will be discussing extreme Healthcare Disparities in America, and their root causes. We will also discuss with Dr. Williams what it was like to be the very first Black cardiology fellow ever at Harvard University, and what it was like for him to overcome so much, coming from a background that did not have many of the advantages that some of us easily take for granted. He is truly an empowering and prolific Renaissance Man. Join us for an especially empowering and touching show today!
